but some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state meeting with count counterpart sergey lavrov. this is the first time since the current crisis escalated that they've had a face-to-face to talk exit strategy. the ukrainian and russian governments meeting for the very first time, talking on a cabinet level today. and russian defense official is discussing ukraine later today at nato in brussels. so, there is definitely a change. whether this change is sustained is another question. back to you be. >> on the international stage the only reality that putin seems to be willing to acquiesce to is the economic reality of what this is doing in russia to their market. what's putin's next move? >> reporter: well, you're right. putin -- if there's one man who could make or break a deal, it's vladimir putin and it's obviously unclear what his next move is. washington and berlin are pushing this idea of sending international observers to monitor any rights abuses against russians or pro-russians on crimea, allowing hopefully some kind of pullback by those russian forces or pro-russian forc
russian counterpart sergey lavrov who says all parties agree to hold intense talks to try to overcome the crisis. defense secretary hagel takes heat up on capitol hill but says the u.s. is suspending military exercises with russia and will step up training with poland's military. we have full coverage beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we
, sergey lavrov, and his chinese counterpart have spoken by phone about the situation. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: well, we know simply from the russian foreign ministry that they had this talk and that their views, russia and china, their views coincide on this issue and that they would be staying in close contact. there are so many high-level talks going on. there is also an osce meeting this afternoon to try and resolve this physician, and john kerry will be coming to kiev on tuesday. so, so many diplomatic efforts. and i've got to tell you, the people here in crimea feel like thaerz caught in the middle of it, and a lot of people say, please, put the message across that right here it's peaceful now. it seems to be that the real anguish, the angst is going on in the war of words around this small part of ukraine, christine. >> that's a really good point. diana magnay, thank you so much. and of course, so much of the issue here is that ukraine is quite literally the pipeline for russia and so much exports of oil and gas to europe. this is right there, the footprint, the
.k., the foreign secretary, and also the ukrainian -- he invited sergey lavrov, to join them as part of this budapest amendment, what he was hoping would be part of a diplomatic way forward. but the russian foreign minister declined to attend the meeting, citing scheduling conflicts. even as the u.s. pushes for this diplomatic way forward, it's looking very rough, wolf. >> looking very rough indeed. so he has wrapped up his talks. the u.s., and correct me if i am wrong, it does formally recognize this new interim government in kiev, the government that replaced the ousted president as the legitimate government of ukraine, right? >> reporter: that's right. it doesn't recognize president yanukovych as the president of ukraine any longer, even though that's what the russians are recognizing. secretary kerry met with many members of the new government, members of the parliament and said that the u.s. wants to help them move towards the elections they'll be having. in may, they'll be training, and they also announced a very robust aid package for ukraine to the tune of $1 billion loan gua
. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry said that in a phone call today, russian foreign minister sergey lavrov assured him the exercises are not related to the ukraine. but he cautioned -- >> statements are statements. words are words. we have all learned that it's actions and the follow-on choices that make the greatest difference. >> reporter: so if russia does not send troops inside ukraine, what could be its intentions? >> definitely take this as a signal that russia is testing itself on sending a message that it is prepared to do things if there is a situation that develops that russia feels it has to protect its interests. >> reporter: and now in a odd coincidence, a russian intelligence ship docked in cuba 90 miles from florida without explanation from havana or moscow. now, russian officials also assured the u.s. that russia was not behind the storming of that parliament building in eastern ukraine. lavrov said he learned about it first watching the television. there is a trust deficit here. when kerry asked if he trusted putin, he said, wolf, there is some value in putin and th
.k., ukraine and russia would be taking part. sergei lavrov has declined the invitation. he will be in paris tomorrow for a donor's conference on lebanon. they had hoped that secretary kerry would be meeting with foreign minister, lavrov while they are in europe. it remains to be seen whether secretary kerry will meet with mr. lavrov but it doesn't look like russia will be taking this diplomatic off ramp as part of the meeting. the u.s. hoped that russia, ukraine at the table would move things along. doesn't look good. >> elise labott traveling with the secretary of state, john kerry, in kiev. joining us now, ambassador, christopher hill, a retired u.s. diplomate, the dean of the joseph corevel school of international stud disies in de. what do you make of this that russia has declined this invitation to sit down with the government and see if there is some diplomatic solution? >> well, i think the problem right now is the russians are calling the ukrainians an illegitimate government. it is kind of problematic to sit down with them in the next day. i do believe that there is some real hope
a diplomatic process going, and that's what he's going to be talking about to sergei lavrov, the russian foreign minister, when they meet tomorrow in paris. >> what about the message he was trying to send in it was also a message to the people of ukraine, right? >> reporter: absolutely, wolf. the whole day was kind of totally with symbolism. first, he started at the shrine of the fallen, then met with ordinary ukrainance. they told him about their story. then he met with government officials, this brand-new government, and offered u.s. support to the tune of $1 billion loan guaranty. other types of technical advice, and had these harsh words for russia, but then came to paris, new ukrainian foreign minister hitched a ride on his plane, showing the u.s. support for this nation. the ukrainian foreign minister said to us, wolf, we know we aren't as strong as russia, but when we have the international support behind us, when i'm flying possibly to meet the russian foreign minister in paris on the secretary of state's plane, that sends an important message to ukrainance that we're a strong na
. from secretary of state john kerry to foreign minister sergey lavrov. they have a close relationship and speak often through the defense ministers, so the ambassador is a symbolic measure, but isn't really going to have any effect on the diplomatic relations because that's really done between capitals. >> thank you so much and obviously, the question if russia gets kicked out of the g8, will they strong more strongly towards brazil, china, india and russia. we're going to be right back with a lot more. stay with us.
